Hometrack acquires SIA Limited
SIA is a software and service provider, focusing on Geographic Information Systems (GIS), with a proven track record of delivering timely, innovative and expert solutions.
SIA has been providing successful GIS to a range of market sectors for over 15 years. These include housing, retail, health, Local Government, education, police and distribution.
dataMAP is a powerful business tool for geographically visualising, managing and analysing both client and demographic information, over a backdrop of computerised mapping from a range of digital map suppliers.
With increasing numbers of personnel requiring GIS on the move, Hometrack SIA has developed dataMAP Mobile, a mapping and GIS system which can be used to visualise and capture geographic data on handheld devices.
SIA's dataMAP Online is a powerful tool, enabling geographic visualisation, data management and spatial analysis to be performed on spatial information held on a backdrop of digital mapping.
The dataMAP Routing System enables detailed shortest/quickest routes along a road network to be determined automatically, accurately and quickly, with high-quality graphical presentation of results via an optional digital mapping facility.
SIA Schools Mapping Admissions Routeing and Transport System (SMART) is purpose-built for use within Local Education Authorities (LEAs). It enables pupil's home-to-school distances and routes to be calculated automatically, accurately and quickly, either "as the crow flies" or via the most detailed road network available in the country. The route optimisation facility allows pupil transportation needs to be satisfied via an efficient sequence of multiple pick-ups.
As part of the eAdmissions National Project, Hometrack SIA has developed the SMART Online system in partnership with Surrey County LEA.
